Plot: The story of Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane's (Pitt) successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.
Cast: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Robin Wright (The Conspirator), Philip Seymour Hoffman, Chris Pratt (Take Me Home Tonight and "Parks & Recreation")
Verdict: I actually have a soft spot for sports movies, and an even softer spot for Baseball, so watching this coach's struggle to cobble together a winning team really got to me. I'm enjoying the light buddy comedy dynamic of Pitt & Hill, and I'm glad Hill is transitioning smoothly from comedy to drama with this inspirational sports dramedy. This could open a lot of doors for him in other genres as well as with other actors, because 90% of the time it's not what you can do but who you know. Throw in the malleable Hoffman and the lovably goofy Pratt and we have ourselves a guaranteed good time.
